Mo Kenney -- Mo Kenney

There are lots of artists out there who love what they do. After all, music is too tough, too heart-breaking a line of business for someone to half-ass. So sure, when you listen to music, you take it for granted that the people you're listening to really care about what they're doing.

But it takes a rare musician to really insert him or herself into their music.

Shove over Tegan and Sarah. Ladies, meet your new heartthrob.

I was hooked within ten seconds of "Deja Vu." There's a certain swagger, a special confidence, that few singers display. Mo Kenney is one of them. "Deja Vu" is a fairly simple song. But Kenney isn't trying to be different -- she's just telling you how it is. And if you don't see eye to eye, you can just keep right on walking for all she cares.

That's the kind of commitment I like to see.
